Virtual Desktop | Rift, Oculus Go + Gear VR

  • Published on Dec 1, 2018
  • Connect to your computer to watch movies, browse the web or play games on a giant virtual screen or in various theater environments. Virtual Desktop is a highly optimized, native application developed for low latency, high quality streaming.
    • Connect up to 4 computers and switch between them in seconds
    • Supports all PCs and laptops running Windows 8.1 or later
    • Supports Bluetooth mice, keyboards and gamepads
    • For best quality/latency, a wired computer with a 5 GHz Wi-Fi is recommended
    • Also works over the internet (enable UPnP on your router)
    The app is actively being developed. Currently working on the following features:
    • Support for 3D Side-by-Side / Over-Under content on screen
    • Ability to cycle through your monitors (if you have a multi-monitor configuration)
    • Videos Tab which will let you download and/or stream 180/360 videos directly from your computer

    Am I missing something here: How in the f**k do I watch a 3D movie inside one of the virtual rooms in here? I can watch 360 movies, sure, but those are garbage. I just want to watch a normal 3D movie on the virtual screen.

      Great question! We do require a Windows PC in order to use our devices.

    ....just let us connect our PC's screen to headset directly instead of going through the extra steps of simulating a screen that does just that? This is a terrible idea and defeats the might as well just be looking at your actual PC monitor.

    Can you just use a keyboard and mouse while using the app. Or are you forced to use the quest controllers?

    Does this allow you to use pinned panels in-app like Oculus Home? I don't want two monitors, I want multiple Windows for different apps running on my desktop

    Tf is going on. Am I the only programmer looking for a VR headset that lets you open desktop windows to surround yourself with?
    Every example for one of these VR desktops is just a VR world with your desktop in the middle of it.

      I forgot the virtual desktop developer, who lurks in the oculus subreddi, says that there isn't an api that allows him to create a 'inifinite'. He's only able to copy the desktop into VR. To do real infinite desktop would be a rewrite of the windows shell graphics stack - a monumental task. I have hope that when microsoft releases its vr headset they will work on this.

    Wait, you never mentioned the rift is compatible, but the title said so? I know, both the quest and rift s are launching, but it's a great opportunity to get a cheap rift. I'm just wondering, can I play this on my rift?

    Can anyone tell me if running games here makes them 3D in the oculus go? I’d like to play simple games that run fine on my older laptop in a virtual desktop mode and be able to get the 3D experience of a 3D monitor through the oculus Go or oculus rift. Tho my laptop only has a GTX 965m... I don’t want the full VR motion control experience, just a 3D normal game experience.

    Virtual desktop junk. I watch Ghost in the shell and I want to pull up multiple monitors up to 40. If I want to monitor multiple apps, I want to be able to expand as many monitors; if I want without having the need to be restricted to my video card. I want to be able to watch the stock market as it moves, connect to Outlook and pull up my messages in separate windows, type messages, Work on documenting information from an excel sheet, Monitor my network connections status, Watch a video, Watch multiple tv channels, Monitor my computer status, etc.
    Otherwise, this is just glorified crap. Yea, this is only 15 bucks but I already got an Oculus home that pretty much does the same thing. So I really don't care to get this.
    If you are going to build a product, at least be better then the original.

    • Guy Godin
      Guy Godin 11 months ago

      Sorry for the late reply but if you have buffering issues it’s a likely due to not having a wired computer and not using a good 5 GHz Wi-Fi as recommended. Reach out to me through the website chat if you need more help (

      You can put Windows 10 on your Mac with Boot Camp.....then install this on the "windows side" of your mac.
      Trust me its worth the process, I use a 55 inch Philips 4K Tv for a monitor but i enjoy the pc through the headset way more. Go figure.

    First thing Oculus exceeds in except the Vive because of the way tracking is handled. This way you also bypass oculus' disadvantage of it's free move capabilities and it's small tracking area. But It's unfortunate that you are then forced to stay in 2D. If you then could act as an 3d output for 3d video display and games that support it (for 3d monitors) this will again be a selling point for the oculus compared to the vive
